Trivia

When Clay gets out of the elevator at The Phoenix Foundation, you can see three portraits in the background, two are of Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver) and Dana Elcar (Pete Thornton), from the original series. The plan was to get both actors for cameos later on, had the series been picked up. See more »

Young MacGyver misses the atmosphere of the original series.
10 February 2013 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

I've been thinking about, why MacGyver hasn't had it's follow-up in the last 20 years. Then I found out this piece of wrongly connected shoelaces and gum. What is missing from the original atmosphere, is the voice-over, where MacGyver explains, what he was doing. As a child, I think I had a good understanding of physics and chemistry, before it got into my curriculum, and that made things a lot easier at school. Of course, times change, but I think one of the niches of the original, was that silent education, which was written in almost every episode.

The new, young, Clay MacGyver is supposed to be adept to take on the torch from his uncle, having all the similar advantages compared to Angus MacGyver. Only thing separating them from each other, would be that the younger version is a restless, loose cannon, with the attribute of making jokes, that none of the crew from Phoenix Foundation understands. It is a good thing, that this didn't went to production, but it gives hope, that MacGyver might rise again like a Phoenix.
